A Chicago Celestial Predicts the Over
throw of Chinese Government.
Chicago, Sept, 29. Chicago's China
town was astir today overjthe news of
the rebellion of troops in China. Sam
Moy, the local mandarin, says:
"It means the beginning of the end
We Chinamen wish to see China win,
but more than that, we wish our own
emperor back in place , of the usurper
who now rules over us. For years the
Gee Hings have been growing in power,
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
and today they have generals and
officers in command of the army. The
sole object of the Gee Hing society is to
overthrow the present emperor and re
store the old dynasty. It is a secret
society with millions of members in
China, and at least 800 in Chicago. The
emperor has offered $1,0Q0 reward for
the head of every Gee Hing, but there is
not enough money in the treasury to pay
for the heads. The war with Japan will
not last much longer, for the Gee Hings
ill be strong enough - to come out
openly and dethrone the emperor." ,
. Mandarin Moy thinks this winter will
see a new emperor and an elaborate cor
onation in China, which many China
men now in America will attend if they
can Deg or Dorrow tne money to cross
the Pacific. "

The Ericsson's Trial.
WASHiNGTON.Sept. 20.--The engineer's
private report upon the performance on
the private trial of the torpedo boat
Ericsson is that she made 21 knots with
350 revolutions of her propellers. As
the engines are designed to run at full
speed, 400 revolutions, the engineers has
no doubt the boat will make the required
24 knots per hour when in trim. As it

where the boat was built, to replace the
broken eccentric, the official test will
not be held until week after next.

A RESPECTFUL TYRANT.
Discharge of a Disagreeable
Duty by a
Beaumarchais, a famous French au
thor, had a servant, Antoine by name,
who had been long in his service, and
against whose tyranny he seldom ven
tured to rabel. One evening, in his
old age, the great man was engaged
in a game of chess, when Antoine en
tered and said; somewhat sharply but
"Monsieur, it is 10 o'clock."
"Very well,.: Antoine,"- the -jnaster
said, "but let me finish the (fame."
"If you don't come now, monsieur.
you will be tired to-morrow morning."
"Oh, no, I think not, Antoine."-
"And being tired out you will not
want to get up."
"Oh, yes, Antoine, I shall get up." '
"No, monsieur, you will not get up."
"All right, Antoine; I will go in a
"And if you are not up, monsieur, at
the usual .time you will derange your
whole clay." ....
"In a minute, in a. minute."
"And you will have 'no' appetite for

Can't 'sea the clok is fast?"
' "But tP.ic cloclr is slow, monsieur."
"I tell you it is fast." ' ' . .
'The cloci: is slow; monsieur."- '. ;
"Now, . now! The game is almost
done, and then '
"Bat if the game were almost done
you would not have so ymany pawns'
left, monsieur." ,
"Antoine, I should have - been done
already if you had let me alone."
"But I shall not let you alone, monsieur."-
"I tell you I shall finish the game.
Get out, Antoine."
"We will get out together, mon
sieur." "Antoine, I'm not a baby."
"You do not cry, monsieur. Apart
from that there is not much differ
ence." ' -: V ;
The dialogue went on in this way
for some time. Beaumarchais, shrug
ging his . shoulder, moved a pawn on
the . chessboard, and then Antoine,
bowing- very low and with a great out
ward show of respect to the company,
seized the board and tipped it over,
dumping the chessmen in a heap on
"the floor.. , , - . ' ,
Beaumarchios was on the point of
flying into a violent rage, but at the
sight of his-valet, who stood by wear
ing an air of sweet humility joined
with the consciousness 1 of duty nobly
done, he burst into a loud fit of laugh
ter and suffered . himself to .be led
home and put to bed.
The next morning Beaumarchais
was found dead in bed. Whether Or
not the excitement of this mild contro
versy with his valet hastened his
death is not known. Antoine, at any
rate, was sure he had done his duty,
and it is quite possible that his care Of
